. president obama and mitt romney are campaigning across several key states this weekend. both candidates will be in colorado, ohio, iowa, and virginia, while romney will also be making a stop in pennsylvania and new hampshire. and it is taking some voters up to four hours to cast their ballots in florida. one of the election's most crucial swing states. remember, early voting in florida started a week later than it did in 2008 because of a new state law. the republican state legislature reduced the number of early voting days from 14 down to 8. there are just three days left until election day and the presidential race is pretty darn tight. the candidates are making a final push through the swing states, looking for any advantage along the way. joining me now to talk about the president's final flurry is the national communications director for the obama campaign. brent, good morning. thanks for being here with us. tell me, what is the strategy for these last three days? >> look, for this last push, it's pretty simple. we want to be as many places as we can, as many times as we can befor
poll showed obama leading romney by three points here, i interviewed govern nor both of them were dismissing public polling saying our models show that the turnout is going to favor republicans. republicans are more enthusiastic. but i went out this morning with some afl-cio organizers. people are talking about turnout. the obama campaign says they've contacted over 120 million vote ners all these battleground states. they have a larger and more sophisticated ground operation. so that's what going on in the end. it's going to come down to turnout. this is a base election. and that's what both campaigns are doing right now is getting their people to vote early, either the obama campaign is doing their famous souls to the polls push tomorrow morning after churches. that's what we're looking at now. >> peter doing some good reporting for us in clumus ohio. still to come, more on the race for the white house. we've got a lot more on the race for the white house. >>> we're also following the aftermath of the superstorm sandy, four days in a shelter with no shower. we're going to take y
counts for both tickets. obama is campaigning in virginia and colorado earlier this week. romney, well, he's cancelled his debates in virginia and he's on a bus tour of ohio. so mitt romney has now an important endorsement out of iowa. the des moines register has chosen romney because they say it's all about the economy. it marks the first time in 40 years that the newspaper has backed a republican and the presidential general election. meanwhile, president obama has added the "new york times" to his endorsement column, the editorial page listed obama's achievement like saving the auto industry and health care reform as reasons for the endorsement. it he has not backed a republican since dwight eisenhower. >> ohio considered quite the price that could win either condition dat at the house. >> obama is scheduled to leave washington, he's not scheduled to leave washington today in fact he's staying close to the white house because of this storm. >> in newest poll in the state of ohio says mitt romney may have condition to be concerned. as we have said, it's a close rate there, we have as
and change. how can both republicans or people who are voting for mitt romney if they're independents say that things have changed too much. they "want their country back." but they still didn't get change. how can you have the argument both ways? >> that's easy, victor, that's easy. republicans never wanted president obama's hope and change. democrats and independents did. >> let's talk about those independents. >> those are the ones right now who are the ones you're talking about. those are the ones most disappointed. >> let's talk about something that happened on your show. a caller called into your show and gave you a bit of a warning, right? >> he gave republicans a warning. the same thing i have been doing. if mitt romney wins this time around, i'm an embarrassed if republicans screw it up this time around, i don't know if we'll vote for them again. >> i'm going to give the republican party this warning, that i'm with you by default. but if you don't do something in the next four years, it's just going to flip right back to democrat. >> and, specifically, that warning is for what el
in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the unemployment rate when the president took office. last month, he's back to where he started. february, 2009, that's the stimulus. then the unemployment rate rise up to 10% in october, 2009 as the stimulus money was being deployed. stubbornly high unemployment. then drifting lower much of this year. we can look at job creation and you can see how jobs have been added now since the end of 2010 consistently, but not robustly
mitt romney among likely voters but when you look at the people who are both likely to vote and follow politics, that lead shrinks to only two. both sides acknowledge that getting out the vote is crucial and a huge part of doing that is finding the volunteers willing to keep calling and knocking until the election. >> is this your life now until a week from tomorrow? >> we're going to keep going up until the very end, keep making calls and doing doors until the polls close. >> you're out there. i'm going to be out there more. >> ted rowlands joins us now from racine, wisconsin. how is the race looking there? >> reporter: we mentioned a poll by marquette university that had the president up eight points, a cnn poll released after that has the lead a little bit more narrow, within the margin of error. both sides agree that this is a -- an election that could go either way. the state of wisconsin could go either way and the difference will be who can get their base out to vote. >> well, they both are certainly trying hard to do that. ted rowlands thank you very much. >> reporter: you bet.
romney, the margin of error is 3 percentage points. the lines are burning up. i visited both campaigns. it is sort of a symphony of noise. dayton, ohio, these volunteers are trying to reach everyone they can as the clock ticks towards election day. >> do you ever get distracted by all the people around you calling? >> no, we don't. we talk all the time. and everybody is talking. right now they have all stopped. but no, we talk at the same time and get the same message out to whomever we're talking. >> reporter: chris cameron and her husband, bill butler, traveled a long way to help the president. >> reporter: why is it so important? >> well, we're from california, but came to ohio, california is kind of a safe state. we wanted to be where the action was, and it is very important to get every single voter out there. >> reporter: she is the lead veteran here. >> how long have you been doing this? >> oh, about 50 years. >> reporter: 50 years you have been volunteering for democrats? >> yes, if they don't have rides we're standing, ready to pick them up to carry them and put them right on

i picked that 250,000 number, different economists say different things. both campaigns, the romney campaign says it a lot. the obama campaign agrees, say they can create 12 million jobs if four years. that's three million a year. that is 250,000 jbz a month. 80,000 more than we're seeing. they both assume, by my calculations, they assume a 4% gdp growth. we're at 2%. now increasingly, surrogates from both campaigns have told me they can do it with a 3% gdp rate which is what we might actually see next year. now former congressman, you know him, vin webber says fiscal and government restraint is the key. listen to what he said. >> we're not seeing any element of that from this administration. no fiscal restraint. only higher taxes on capital as well as on labor. that's a bad mix. >> so that's the answer that the republicans are putting forward. fiscal and government restraint will kick up your gdp growth to the extent you'll create more jobs. ken, do you buy that? >> well, i -- looks to me like their plan is to cut taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit woul
. >> with both campaigns hitting their message hard. >> mitt romney's not the solution. he's the problem. >> drastically different messages but with some notable similarities. the "new york times" the campaign media analysis group at kantar media studied 119 presidential campaign ads that aired nearly 180,000 times in october. looking for similarities in images, themes and props. >> the campaigns have a tremendous number of ads in rotation and there's a special focus on women voters. >> 13% of the ads from both campaigns featured the voices of women. mitt romney's campaign tries to show he understands women's issues in this ad. >> he totally gets working women. >> while president barack obama's campaign ad wants to show just the opposite. >> it's a scary time to be a woman. mitt romney is just so out of touch. >> many of the ads in both campaigns are negative in tone, with 90% of pro-obama ads using an image of mitt romney. >> corporations are people, my friend. >> they always portray him in a suit and tie which is less bad than putting him in a tuxedo. but the opposite's also the case o
to overtaking the president in several key swing states and both nationally. now, the romney campaign did put out a memo earlier in the week throwing cold water on one ohio state poll they took issue with saying it wasn't properly calibrated but they are also at the same time touting a new "washington post" poll showing mitt romney leading the president nationally and doing very well among independents. at the same time we should p point out that along this tour he has hit a bit of a roadblock. one of his top surrogates, john sununu made some comments when he suggested that colin powell was endorsing the president because of his race. sununu put out a statement saying he believes powell endorsed the president because of his policies. it's not just the tough talk on the campaign trail that we're seeing that is causing things to get a little rocky out here. there is also the prospect of a major storm heading to the east coast. what forecasters have dubbed frankenstorm. it has already caused the romney campaign to reschedule on sunday. no word on when it will be rescheduled. >> thanks very much.
focus on women voters. >> 13% of the ads from both campaigns featured the voices of women. mitt romney's campaign tries to show he understands women's issues in this ad. >> he totally gets working women. >> while president barack obama's campaign ad wants to show just the opposite. >> it's a scary time to be a woman. mitt romney is just so out of touch. >> many of the ads in both campaigns are negative in tone, with 90% of pro-obama ads using an image of mitt romney. >> corporations are people, my friend. >> they always portray him in a suit and tie which is less bad than putting him in a tuxedo. but the opposite's also the case on the romney ads. typically in the romney ads you see him in jeans and his blue oxford shirt trying to look a little more casual. >> 75% of pro-romney ads show images of president obama. >> you can't change washington from the inside. >> republicans use sad, depressed faces in 21% of their ads, mostly to illustrate unemployment. democrats only use that tactic in 1% of their ads. but democrats went heavy on the elderly, using elderly voices or images in 38% of

on the presidential cam pains. particularly in some key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, coul
several key states this weekend. both candidates will be in colorado, ohio, iowa and virginia while romney also makes some stops in pennsylvania and new hampshire. >>> number four, it's taking some voters up to four hours to cast their ballots in florida. one of the election's most crucial swing states. remember early voting in the sunshine state started a week later than it did in '08 because of a new state law. the republican state legislature reduced the number of early voting days from 14 to 8. >>> and number five, gas prices are falling across the u.s. aaa reporting the national average dropped just over a penny to $3.48 a gallon. that is the 23rd consecutive decline. prices are lowest in south carolina, where the average gallon will cost you $3.17. >>> the images of sandy's destruction have been striking. the economic losses devastating. in addition to the homes lost because of the hurricanes. the more than 20,000 flights were canceled across north america. fedex tells "new york times" it has been struggling to find gas for its delivery trucks. the advertising company have lost $5 mi
. governor romney's getting the republicans so you want to look at the middle. 48% for governor romney. 46% for the president so a dead heat. both candidates are in the state today and will be back to make their case. because of ohio's diversity, what's the demographic composition. among nonwhite voters, he's getting 70% of the vote. cleveland, columbus, here in cincinnati. a growing latino population. the president starts with a head start. the white vote, 44% to 53% for romney. i would say this. if governor romney can keep the white vote closer to 40%, he has a chance and getting minority turnout, that was the president's recipe for success four years ago. >> i know that is so crucial when you look at ohio, what do you see there? >> the reason, it has -- you look at a couple of different places. the north of the state. cleveland, over to toledo. a place where we think we see evidence the auto bailout is helping. across the industrial north. that means a lot of blew collar white voters supporting the president. then you come here to the southwest corner of the state. cincinnati is in hami
supporters, but overall i think the edge was to romney, about the there's real questions both about the authenticity of his recentering in the general election after campaigning as a severe conservative. you heard that. also, real questions about the role that social issues and the religious right play in the republican party. some of them were very fiscally conservative is saying this doesn't fit me or my generation. it's a fascinating wide-ranging issue of students very engaged in that pivotal battleground state of virginia. >> where have you been? you've been in florida, north carolina. you're in virginia with ali velshi, and is that sort of the theme in talking to some of these voters, john, that, you know, really it's the economy that is clearly the biggest concern, the biggest issue as they're heading to the polls? >> absolutely. the economy is the biggest issue. you do hear a lot of conversation about deficit and debt, but there is the question about who would be a better steward. there's a sense the economy is improving. people acknowledge that. the big question mark is has
both mitt romney and paul ryan are campaigning in that state. ryan is in harrisburg, pennsylvania, today and tomorrow. romney heading to bucks county. and cnn political editor paul stein houser is live from harrisburg right now. the polls show that romney is narrowing the gap with obama in that state. can he realistically hope to take the state this late in the game? >> reporter: no doubt about it. 90 minutes from me at the airport you'll have paul ryan, the republican running mate holding a rally. yeah, tomorrow mitt romney is going to be in suburban philadelphia. that's the swing part of the state, the part of the state that really determines who wins pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes. the obama campaign is not taking this sitting down. jill biden is coming to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the final nine days of this campaign in pennsylvania,
, to offer housing, medical and property assistance after both natural and man-made disasters. mitt romney suddenly yearned for that very thing after refusing to answer whether he favors doing away with fema 14 times, his campaign spun this answer. quote, i believe that fema plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. as president, i will make sure that the fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission. that's different from what he said during a debate. >> some people say do it on a case by case basis but some people say maybe we're learning the lesson here, that states should take on more of that role. >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion and take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> in the wake of sandy, it seems those against fema's future may be having a change of heart. what do you think? is fema necessary? facebook.com/carolcnn. facebook.com/carolcnn. your re
the election day, president obama and mitt romney will both be hitting the final battleground states very, very hard. we've got a look at some new polling in a few of these states, "the wall street journal"/nbc/marist poll shows the president with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a very small two-point edge in new hampshire. i'm joined by mark preston live in washington. mark, there's been a lot of talk about the president's handling of hurricane sandy and how it might affect this race. we get a glimpse of what americans think about this handling in a new poll by abc/"washington post." 78% of voters approve of the president's response, 44% say they approve of mitt romney's reaction. neither candidate is seeking to politicize this were tragedy overtly. but it really does beg the question, how could this affect this race? >> it certainly puts the president in the position of being a commander in chief and being the leader at the time of a crisis. and in many ways, he's gotten a lot of support of one of mitt romney's top surrogates, and that's chris c
of this really is a very delicate act right now on both the part of the president and mitt romney? >> you know, it's very delicate, yes, but, you know, the president has to do his job. what he is doing is doing his job, which is he is going to devastated areas which one would expect, the commander in chief to do. he is deploying resources. if he didn't show up there, people would be saying where is the president? i think, a, he has a job so do and he is doing it. it is a little more difficult, of course, for mitt romney. mitt romney doesn't have a job to do. he is not the president. that's his job. he has to walk a fine line and saying, look, we have to think of you people along the eastern seaboard, and then take a turn and take a turn to politics and campaigning as the president will do when he gets back on the campaign trail tomorrow, but in the meantime, he has to be president of the united states. you mention the president will be campaigning again and have stops in wisconsin and vegas. all very key to winning the election. you have romney in florida today in tampa just the last hour. tel
two other stops in that battleground state today. both the president and romney express concern for those now struggling from that storm, but they also renewed their attacks. take a listen. >> a lot of people lost their lives. a lot of families in the devastated, a lot of homes have been lost and property lost and our hearts go out to the people who are suffering. i know that the boem folks are chanting four more years, four more years, but our chant is this. five more days. >> no democrats or republicans during a storm. there are just fellow americans. leaders of different parties working to fix what's broken. neighbors helping neighbors cope with tragedy and a spirit that says in the end we're all in this together. we rise or fall in one nation. governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we've been cleaning up the last four years. >> candy crowley, host of cnn's "safety union." we've been watching this. five more days. we're counting them down. it's the president's f
an impact on both president obama and mitt romney's campaigns. i want to welcome ken rogoff to our panel, harvard university professor of economics and public policy. we'll begin, sir, though, with christine romans. let's talk about how they crunch these numbers. >> the jobs report is actually two sprit surveys, unemployment rate comes from a survey of 60,000 households. the job creation number comes from a survey of 141,000 businesses. to get the unemployment rate, 200 census workers interview 60,000 households in person and over the phone. everyone over the age of 16 is classified as employed, unemp y unemployed or not in the labor force. from that then the government extrapolates the unemployment rate. job creation number comes from another sample, sample of 141,000 businesses. they tell the government how many workers they have on their payroll. like the household survey, the sample is meant to include the whole u.s., including offices, stores. both surveys look the a particular week or pay period usually around the 12th day of the month. this month it was the week of october 7th to
there are differences between romney and obama in terms of their policies, i do think both of them, you know, are subject to, as i mentioned, superpac to the best government that money can buy. going forward we should examine something different from the standpoint of policies and standpoint of government that allows u.s. voters a significant choice. >> i want to talk about this really interesting op-ed you wrote for the "washington post." you compared the u.s. debt crisis to crystal meth addiction. you said, "hooked on the temporary high of tax cuts and increased entitlements over the past several decades, the nation's capital is approaching the end of the line traveled by most addicts, reform or suffer the consequences." explain this. is this part of the new normal that you predicted after the '08 financial crisis? >> it is. it suggests that the u.s. faces a, you know, fiscal cliff decision over the next few months that is $1 billion to $2 billion deep. but a grand canyon over the nextnext few years that is over $1 trillion wide. our cbo, our congressional budget office have conservatively
said bill, is ha really what you meant? he said romney's plan is a plan to reduce the deficit from some undisclosed plan of tax reform. i believe under both candidates, we will see trillion dollar deficits. either by the sale of treasuries from reserve country nations and or a decline in the dollar, which could lead to further rating service downgrades as well as higher interest rates. that is a pretty frightening and damming indictment of both plans. >> i remember in the 1990s and now the deficit was not as big then. that's true. but it was big and i remember people saying, asking me, i was in the house at the time. well, can you balance the budget without or while you're cutting taxes? our tax rates. i said i don't think we can balance the budget without cutting tax rates because that's how you get the economy moving. you've got to have growth. i think it's doable. we are going to need cooperation, but i'm hopeful that after the election, maybe they'll sit down and we can talk. >> mitt romney's saying he's going to balance the budget by the end of the second term. that means running d
. there are two other polls, both rasmussen and fox, that have romney up by two. it's margin of error. it's close, and it's going to come down to turn out the last undecided voters. i think why romney will win virginia is because he is the one that's going to reverse these sequestration cuts. they're going to devastate the military and cost us $200,000 jobs. the president has been a bystander and won't do that. he is the one with the plan to create jobs and we've got 23 million people that don't have jobs nationally and eight -- excuse me -- $16 trillion in debt. that's what virginians are concerned about and why there's been this momentum towards governor romney. the mishandling of the -- no transparency. 45 days after the fact. it's a great concern. either the president gave an order that was disobeyed by the secretary of defense to provide support in benghazi or he didn't, and i think people want answers before this election on that, so that's what's going to determine the outcome. we got a great ground game, and i expect governor romney to win a close election in virginia, candy. >> you may n
